As it is implemented right now, there's no hole, because we don't have
a true array, just keys with a shared prefix.
I guess the term array that is used right now is not right (it sets
certain expectations).
Maybe map is a better term.

Anyway, I updated the documentation to reflect the current code.
And the loop example that you provided is what one would expect based
on the 'array' term.  If we would use 'map' term, maybe the confusion
could be avoided.

Also, it is true that there's no bulletproof way to iterate through
all value/pairs of a given key after performing operations on an
'array' key.  It seems that this is what's really missing here.
Although, a well crafted script could handle this.
